It is important to recognise that with the introduction of the Internet property portals, Rightmove and OnTheMarket, your property is always going to get maximum exposure, should you choose a national corporate agent or your local independent agent. Nearly every estate agent in the country can be found on Rightmove.
What you are really looking for is that edge that one agent may have over another. This is when your local independent agent has a vital advantage.
Take Gilbert & Cleveland for example. All the managing partners have over 30 years working experience in the property industry running their respective branches ‘hands on’ and therefore crucially form an integral part of their local community. They have that deep appreciation of what makes their town tick. Experience counts, having a genuine understanding of house prices in their patch means that property listed for sale is both correctly and realistically priced. A national estate agent from out of town, simply can’t have the same feel or understanding for your locality.
Gilbert & Cleveland invest a large amount of time and money on marketing your home, to ensure it reaches the widest audience. This crucial understanding of client and market, makes the difference. This allows us to be able to target the right buyer for you, which in turn allows us to achieve the best possible price in the shortest time.
